Weary Soul

Waking up, feeling all worn out

Nothing to even say or shout

Fearing the day ahead

Should I stay in bed?

Nudging myself to move

Where is today’s groove?


Walking over to the table

Will I honestly feel able?

Feeling a cool, gentle breeze

From a window, brings a need

Turning Bible pages to a spot

Now God’s words find its dot


Speaking to me, comes a Savior

His words convey a new flavor

“Come to me, you are weary”

My eyes gaze tired and teary

“Your burdens are heavy, I see”

Jesus brings a time-out to thee


Christ remains patient and humble

Gathering me up when I stumble

He commands rest for weary souls

Easing a hefty load, much too full

Our Lord waits only a quick step away

His precious words bring plenty to say

Much of the inspiration for this poem comes from the Bible.  The precious words spoken by our Savior Jesus proclaim from Matthew 11:28-30.

“Come to me, all you that are weary and carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

  2. This really got me at just the right spot today morning.
    The way you talk about following how Jesus feels your burden got tears to my eyes. Not just because if he would meet us in physical form eye to eye as a human he would be just like that: nice, compassionate and kind. But because reminded me that he went through so much in his life but stayed selfless, calm and kind to others.
    His mornings must have been drastically different then ours but even then he comes and feels for us. No matter how tiny our problem could look to him he takes it serious and listens and answers.

    Beautiful poem. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Beautiful! Oh, the joy we find when we ‘rest’ in our Lord. The world can make us weary, but our God is just a heartbeat away. As scripture reminds us, His grace is always enough. With Him, we can always start again, and find our quiet strength, because He renews our being and gives us hope. I am so happy that I found your blog and your poems…very inspiring. Thank you!
